James Madison’s Montpelier Foundation is the subject of two pieces below, the first a MAJOR investigative piece involving dozens of documents and double-digits interviewees, which was the =cover story for the Washington Examiner magazine.

At home of Father of the Constitution, it was more like the ‘anti-Constitution Day.’ (Sept. 16-17):   Amid staff disruptions and swirling questions about its finances, the foundation created to honor the “Father of the Constitution” is scrambling to mark Constitution Day on Saturday with two woke, anti-Constitution panel discussions. …..[To repeat: Here.]
